is lagging in key states. we'll talk with newt gingrich about the reasons why and what the romney campaign should do. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been st
of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates
've interviewed newt gingrich, he often says to me the way it worked with president clinton, when he was the speaker, was that you would be in a room full of advisors and a moment would come, you would sling them all out and it would be you and him, man to man, get it done, compromise, get it done. why is that not happening now, and what advice do you give to barack obama to try and get into that kind of mindset with the republicans? >> that's -- what speaker gingrich said is true but it's not the whole truth. that is, we had one year when virtually nothing got done. i was a real stickler for passing all my budgets on time, and -- but in 2005 we didn't, and i had to veto what they did, and they had to do what they did because that's what they promised the voters they'd do in the '94 elections, and then the citizens decided they agreed with me more than them, they didn't want the government shut down, they just wanted to keep bringing the deficit down. so after the two government shutdowns in late '95 and early '96, then we began this compromise process everybody talks about. there ha
them pretty effectively to dispatch rick perry, dispatch newt gingrich, who everybody was talking about as the great debater and so on. so i actually think romney has a good chance of sort of getting over the sort of is he presidential hump. i agree with charles, though, he has to get a bit further and deliver a little more on substance than he did during the republican convention. and the republican convention was all about mitt romney, you know, likeable human being. i think talking about likability now sort of misses the point. for romney, it's all about saying obama has failed, here's some substance i can offer as an alternative, you don't necessarily have to love me to want to put me in charge of a country that's frankly in a bit of a mess still. >> the strange thing about mitt romney, i have interviewed him three times now and he is quite likeable when you meet him privately. there's definitely two sides. i was struck by what one of his sons told me at the convention, when i interviewed all the boys. he said he has struggled to get out of ceo mode in public. for so long he ran a b
is getting a little support even newt gingrich the other day came out and said you have to help this guy. it is a pblem for republica because, 28 and they had a shot in 2010 i should say, and they had a shot of gettinthe majority, buthe ndida whether delaware, colorado, nevada, and they got the minority status in t s a result. >> iell you what. there are a couple of republicans who were throwing him under the bus when the legitimate rape comments came out and as soon as they knew they were stuck with i am had, holy cow. >> the chairman of the republican party, the republican if they changes their minds and go ahead and work for him, that will be a problem. >> and people that threw him under the bus back then, many of them have come back and said this guy is great, behind him 100%. wolf, thank you. always love it when you're on my program and love it when you're on your program. situation room, 4:00 eastern. big tease for the how. thank you, wolf. we're jt days as well from the debate that wolf was just mentioning, the sqre off, the big fto-fac first presidential debate starts wednesday
like newt gingrich who this week chastised the gop establhment for aandoning akin. >> if saying something dumb would disqualify you, joe biden wouldn't be vice president. >> reporter: national gop strategists say mccaskill who sees akin as beatable has intentionally withheld her attacks on akin until the deadline passes to drop out. she's limiting to touting her own moderate credentials. republican strategists who've written off missouri admit it has put gop chances for seizing the senate majority at major risk. take a look at the math to help explain why. republicans currently hold 47 out of 100 senate seats. to win outright control of the senate, republicans must pick up four seats that are currently held by democrats assuming they lose no seats currently held by republicans. now to the map. the most likely place for a gop win is the open democratic seat in nebraska. other states in the tossup column republican strategists say they're hoping to snatch, north dakota, wisconsin, montana, connecticut, virginia and ohio. what makes the gop road to the senate majority even tougher
